What was cool when you were younger that isn’t cool now?
The landline. Having your own phone in your room, and your own number. And then it really got exciting when it was portable, and you could walk around the house with it!
What is something we don’t know about you?
Well, my first job at Country Day was teaching French. I started learning French in Seventh Grade, and while I wasn’t the best student, I just loved learning another language. I studied it all through college, and then I went to Paris, and it all clicked.
What’s in your starter pack?
Where am I? On a desert island? No? OK, going to work: water bottle, my computer, and my phone. Because if I have those things, I can work, even if I’m stranded.
